    Tavolo and tavola, it is the same thing?


    1. Hi Jorgetavaraf! Yes and no. The word “tavolo” (masculine) is used only to speak about the table as a piece of furniture; while the word “tavola” (feminine) is used to described the table as a place where people gather to eat their meals. So you can buy a “tavolo” but you will sit and eat at the “tavola”. I hope it helps
